Space Planning and Schematic Design

We will examine your space and develop preliminary layout plans, in order to place correctly the functional areas for your practice. This information will provide guidance as to the existing and proposed usage, development potential and will help solidify your short and long term goal for the space.

Contract Documents

Following approval to proceed with a selected layout plan, we will proceed developing the ceiling plans and specifications, cabinetry and millwork drawings, Architectural Interior elevations, hardware and door schedules. This information, along with Mechanical and Electrical Engineering drawings, will be required to establish a scope of work by the General Contractors, and provide accurate pricing for your project.

Permit Submission

If required, we can coordinate the process of submission of all the Drawings and Specifications on your behalf, in order to apply for a Building Permit with local authorities. This will include obtaining Drawings and Specifications from Engineering Consultants, review for Building Code Compliance and submission to the City. Please note, fees for Permit processing are goverend by local authorities and will depend on scope and size of project.

Tender Administration

The process involves issuing the contract documents to interested General Contractors for bidding. When necessary, we will also issue a document entitled ìInstructions to Biddersî which outlines the project description, contacts and general requirements that the GC will have to meet should they be awarded the project.

Value Engineering

Following selection of the General Contractor and finalizing Contract Documentation, we review the final specifications and determine whether there are any possibilities for cost savings on the project, without compromising the Design Intent. This process may produce savings, depending on suggestions and trade connections brought to the table by the General Contractor.

Contract Administration

Contract Administration is a phase where we administer your Contract for Construction with the General Contractor. As part of this process, we will represent your interests during construction; visit the site on regular progress meetings and review General Contractor's application for progress payments.
